Default Can't figure out why my carb has 3 hoses???

So my carb on my lifan engine has 2 little hoses along with the main nipple and I have no idea what they are for. Anyone know? Also how do I set them up...

One is the bowl drain, and the other is a overflow drain. And the other is your fuel inlet.

The drain hose runs down to a remote location that has easy access.

In your case (Micargi) you can simply plug it off at the carb.
